Welcome to the Cottage.

Market Friday 5.11.18

This week's Farmers Market Friday in photos:


We've been trying hard to avoid using disposable goods and single-use plastics when out of the cottage. We're making a effort at our weekly farmers market in particular, but it can be tough since so many items come pre-packaged. Still, I've started carrying a small, washable pouch that easily contains almost everything we need for the majority of our quick dining and shopping on-the-go. This includes reusable bags and bottles/thermoses, a bottle sling, camping cutlery for the adults, a folding spork for West, cloth napkins, 2 stainless steel straws (and a corresponding cleaning brush) for the adults, a silicone straw for West, reusable beeswax wrap, and a waterproof sandwich bag in which to put the items after they've been used. It's all compact for toting and for storing in our tiny home.
